a critical boost. new york senator chuck schumer has given his seal of approval to his former senate colleague, chuck hagel. a decision that could rally senate democrats and signal an easier path for hagel's confirmation. for more on this now we're joined by nbc's kristin welker at the white house. how big a push does hagel get from chuck schumer's endorsement? earlier in the week there was some ambivalence from chuck schumer, wasn't there? >> reporter: absolutely. i think hagel get a big push. i think a lot of eyes were on chuck schumer to see what he decides. he met with hagel. the two sat down at the white house, had a long meeting, and chuck schumer came out of that meeting essentially saying he now supports hagel's nomination for secretary of defense. one of the key points he makes is that he feels as though hagel has shifted positions on some of these controversial issues and comments that he brought up in the past, on iran, on israel, and he specifically says that hagel now understands the fact that israel is in a more endangered spot than it was, essentially acknowledging the
. no not jesus. hagel got support from none other than senator chuck schumer of new york. the two men met chuck to chuck on monday and schumer seems to have liked what he heard. schumer said hagel would use the military force to keep iran from going nuclear and that he won't negotiate with hamas or hezbollah until they recognize israel does exist and has a right to keep on doing so. so now everyone can call the jewish schumer anti-semmite. israel may have found its two chuck solution. let's bring moo my guest. comedian ben kissell on cave comedy radio. sherrod small an actor and comedian who appears on literally every show on television. and comedian dave rubin, host of the rubin report on rubinreport.com. thank you all so much for joining us tonight. so i know all of you have been lying in bed awake at night haunted by your doubts about chuck hagel. >> you know it. >> john: does chuck schumer clear it up for you? >> i'm glad the chuck on chuck hate is over. >> a guy named chuck has to back another guy named chuck. it is not like john, dave, you can find a dave that doesn't agree with you. chuc

within a drama there, which is chuck schumer and-- chuck schumer a democratic senator from new york, jewish, seen as a decisive vote inside the senate and the republicans mostly oppose hagel and the question for the democrats go and could be following schumer's league and going to enjoy this drama as long as he can and get on tv a lot saying i'm deciding, i'm deciding, you'll deciding, and see what he's doing in the end. >> and what do you think of the pick of the president for a republican. >> and commenttators would say why would you pick someone with such tense rowlations as a republican. most republicans don't see chuck hagel as a stand-up guy anymore. and said the reason he's there, is they're asking republicans, nominal republicans to cut the defense budget, that's one thing to do in republican circles and that's why he's there. >> jon: have the politics of this choice been examined? if you want to fracture the republican senate the way you fractured the republican house with a the fiscal cliff vote you pick chuck hagel. >> it's interesting, and folks went off bill kristol, wh
. chuck schumer was saying you have mccain and rubio up there with chuck schumer shows there's bipartisan appeal. it could fall apart. house republicans gave the cool response. there was barely a republican leader in the house who said a nice deal. >> would they rather see it piecemeal? >> rather piecemeal and without a pathway to citizenship. it's the most important component. you had rush limbaugh saying i'm calling on my listeners and fox news to unite to kill this plan. he's talking marco rubio in particular. >> the citizenship part? >> totally. it's the pathway to citizenship. the idea that some people that came here illegally are going to be allowed, ultimately to stay in the country. that is always turned off. >> your odds against the descendent on the time line by the end of spring? >> it can get through the senate quickly. then we get to the house. you have to understand the congress you are dealing with. in the house, it is a much more conservative, much more southern group of republicans who are hostile to immigration. it doesn't mean it can't be done. ultimately, this, unlike
the powerful new york senator chuck schumer. this morning schumer released a statement that reads in part, based on several key assurances provided by senator hagel, i am currently prepared to vote for his confirmation. i encourage my senate colleagues who have shared my previous concerns to also support him. well, this coupled with senator barbara boxer's vote of support yesterday has made his path for conformation look a lot easier. joining me is "the huffington post's" sam stein and "time" magazine's michael crowley. i thought schumer would take more time. got it on the record, maybe got a little more pro-hawkish than he was to start with the interview, but he got what he needed. i was impressed at the speed with which this is being done. your thoughts? >> i'm sort of with you on the one hand. it looked like schumer had legitimate concerns about what hagel's positions were with respect to iran and israel. then again, i thought about what was behind the act? in the end it was a democratic president appointing a cabinet member. it didn't shock me that schumer was on board. i was surprise
to speak to you again as this moves forward. we got a statement from chuck schumer. there will be a strong democratic vote for this proposal and hopefully we will vote before midnight. we spoken to other who's say that's probably not likely. senator harry reid says they are waiting for the coo as well. let's go to nbc's kristen welker at the white house. tell us what you are hearing from your sources there? >> good evening, milissa. according to chuck todd, breaking details from that meeting that vice president biden just had. no one in the meeting said they were planning to vote against this bull once it does move through the senate, it doesn't mean they won't. they didn't voice opposition during that meeting, so that is significant this idea there is some liberal revolve doesn't seem to be coming to the floor, the vice president's agreement received very well. and speculation it could get as many as 80 votes. the vice president putting to caucus members this way. the second part of a three-part process. first was the budget control act. this deals with the issue of taxes, something that
of this year. chuck schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio and bob menendez will discuss the plan. we'll bring it to you live. our first read team notes this is the first time senator mccain signed on to a priority of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let'
schumer. let me play for you just sort of a bllittle mash-up of what we heard on the sunday shows. >> superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on how feels about troops and veteran families. >> i think another thing, george, is going to come up is just his overall temperament and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. >> at this point would you vote against him? >> no. nor would i vote for him. i think we've got -- this is why we have hearings. >> he's going to have to answer questions. he's prepared to do it. i think he'll come out of this with strong support. >> michael, i guess the question is the same as it was on the previous topic, which is, how serious are his opponents and how much of a fight is this going to be? >> well, i think it's a little bit tvd, it's not -- it us 23409 does not appear as serious as the would be nomination of susan rice to secretary of state, which john mccain and several other prominent republicans were saying, absolutely not, i'm a no vote. you heard that mccain was agnostic on this. i don't
. >>> president obama's next battle with congress may have gotten a bit easier. chuck schumer, a leader in the senate, has given his stamp of approval for chuck hagel as the sex be secretary of defense. haguels's nomination is another example we think here at "hardball" of obama's newfound fighting spirit and we like it, of course. from the debt careering to the nra, to the neocons. the president is sticking it to his opponents and he's winning. >>> and the house of representatives is voting on a relief package for the victims of superstorm sandy. will republicans stand up to help those hit by the form. >>> let me finish with a republican party that's beginning to sound and look like a pack of moon shiners. they don't like those revenuers. this is "hardball," the place for politics. are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo, buddy! i got this. gimme
may have just gotten a bit easier. chuck schumer, a leader in the senate, has given his stamp of approval for chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. hagel's nomination is another example we think here at "hardball" of obama's newfound fighting spirit, and we like it, of course. from the debt ceiling to the nra to the neocons. taking them on. the president is sticking it to his opponents, and he's winning. >>> and the house of representatives is voting on a relief package for the victims of superstorm sandy. will republicans stand up to help those hit by the storm? or stand in the way? >>> let me finish with a republican party that's beginning to sound and look like a pack of moonshiners. they don't like those revenuers. this is "hardball," the place for politics. with the spark cash card from capital one, sven gets great rewards for his small business! how does this thing work? oh, i like it!

disagree. i believe that chuck shum schumer will vote for chuck hagel. >> let's just point out that we were -- when you see a picture of the east room of the white house, the press corps awaiting, right now hamid karzai and president obama are having lunch, and when they come out, we were told it would be at 1:15. if they come out, they will each make statements and answer questions. clearly the president is also going to be asked about domestic issues. i would suspect guns given that that is one of the prime issues that the white house is dealing with right now as joe biden continues meetings on the gun issue today. chris alissa, when we talk about president obama and what he is facing in changing his team, when david gregory asked on "meet the press" about hagel, and i think we all expected that the number three democrat in the senate would say, okay, great choice. he said, well, not so much. we'll have to wait to see what happens at the hearing, or something like that. chuck todd and i were sitting at the table on "meet the press" and said whoa. >> we got a 33 second answer, which is nev
and lindsay graham has expressed some concern, but senator chuck schumer, a democrat might be key in getting him confirmed and he's the third ranking senator. so a lot of people will be looking to him. he is on the fence right now. a lot of people will be looking to him to see where he stands and whether he does, in fact, give hagel a thumbs up. that could have a big impact. >> kristen welker, thanks so much. we'll check back with you later in the show. we'll see you soon. >>> the nation's longest-running war topping the agenda this week. the president met with hamid karzai in washington to discuss the pace of withdrawing u.s. troops from afghanistan. joining me now in the msnbc studios aattia abawi and general wesley clark, general clark ran for president in 2004 as a democrat. i want to start with you, because as we were watching what took place with the meeting with president obama and president karzai. we know president karzai does want the troopses out of aftering aftering, but now this symbolic meeting and the talk that came from yesterday, what does it mean going forward for 2014? >>
to the nomination of chuck hagel. but there are key senators like senator chuck schumer that will make a big difference. with regard to senator schumer, i cannot speak more highly than senator schumer. i was seeking the aim accusations when i was running as senator of pennsylvania in 2010. senator schumer called me and came in to philadelphia and met with the jewish literee leaders having understood having been in the military, we would have laid down our lives for the defense of israel. i went to the middle east with senator hagel and heard him talk about having the strength of having america defend israel. my take on end of the day, senator schumer critically will probably do what he did once for america, defend that that is best for national security interests. i think he's going to be key and you'll see in these hearings that chuck hagel, former enlisted man for vietnam will get this nomination because of what he will do for america's security. >> based on what admiral sestak just said, politico is reporting saying if schumer would oppose hagel it would amount to a fatal blow to his cand
with that statement there. as you were writing you said as chuck schumer goes so goes hagel. >> that's right. chuck schumer is probably the most important voice in this debate on the democratic side right now. really the only way that chuck hagel doesn't get confirmed right now is if democratic senators come out in opposition to him. there is going to be a balk of republican senators who will vote against hagel for the reasons you mention. >> do you think schumer will go against this nomination? >> i think it is unlikely at this point. chuck hagel will have to really assure both schumer, blumenthal, other jewish democrats that he would be a staunch advocate for israel. i'm sure he will do that. if he slips up in any way in the hearings or if a lot of the groups off of the hill that are very influential try to derail after the hearings it will be very hard for some democrats to vote for him. absent that i think his confirmation is affirmed. >> let's change subjects to afghanistan that came up throughout this week. i want to play a little sound here from retired army general stanley mccrystal. >> i h
schumer. this year marks the 150th year since the completion of the capitol dome. the project began in the 1850's's and stopped midway through when the civil war broke out. there was a question among congress and the president as to whether we could fight a civil war and finish the dome. president lincoln said, if people see the capitol going on, it is a sign that we intend the union shall go on. center schumer selected this theme and knowing that we have challenges we face as a country. if we look back and we accomplished 150 years ago, we can find faith in america's future. this is a steam dole and for some of the remarks throughout the day. -- a theme that will inform some of the remarks throughout the day. the day for our committee really begins about 9:00, when the members had to the white house for coffee and tea with the president. senator mcconnell joined that group. -- joins the group. there is coffee with the president, vice president, first lady, and dr. biden as well. everyone begins to make their way back to the capital at 10:00 or 10:30. our members, they will greet th
. >> senator schumer. >> first, let me apologize to the witnesses. we have a finance committee meeting on reconciliation, which probably affects our police chief anyway, so i had to be there. i want to thank you, chairman leahy, for organizing this important hearing. i want to thank the witnesses, particularly congresswoman giffords and your husband, mark kelly. by being here instead of cursing the darkness you are lighting a candle. thank you. i do believe that we have a chance to do something reasonable in the aftermath of the sandy hook tragedy. but when we discuss ways to stop violence, guns must be included in that discussion. i heard ranking member grassley say we must go beyond guns. that is true. but we must include guns as well not including guns when discussing mass killings is like not including cigarettes when discussing lung cancer. but the same time, i agree. we cannot play the usual somum zero political game on guns, or tg the moment will pass us by. we cannot play the same zero sum game on guns, or the moment will pass us by. the american government will never take away
hoss, mrs. iris wine stawn, wife of chuck schumer, and the wife of harry reed and mr. paul pelosi, the husband of house minortiy leader nancy pelosi. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, the first lady of the united states, mrs. michelle obama, accompanied by secretary of the senate nancy erikson, clerk of the house of representatives, karen h0. 0s, mrs. schubert, mrs. reed and -- [cheering] in >> next up we're going to see the approach and about to be announced of vice president, the world's happiest guy, bill biden. don't think we have ever seen him except in times of national crises without that smile on his face. >> and why not today. >> it's the effect of joe biden's remarks on this administration. they were an odd couple. he was the hot to barack obama's cool. >> he was the punch line for a lot of late-night monologues. if anything, joe biden has emerged in this administration has a key player and indispensable player in dealing with the congress and the political part of politics, the people part of politics which the president does not spend a lot of time, effort, or energy
schumer. let me bring in quickly david shuster who is on the ground in washington, d.c. david, where are you perched? >> governor granholm, we're at 7th and madison. i'm personally thrilled to hear that the marine corps band has been the start of our coverage as opposed to beyonce, kelly clarkson and james taylor. we're going to hear from them as well but you're right, the marine corps band goes back to 1790s, back to the time of george washington. part of the official sort of vibe that we're going to hear this morning. we're at 7th and madison, about seven blocks from the reviewing stand, from the area where president obama and the dignitaries are -- 1500 dignitaries will be seated around president obama. what they've done is because of security, they've pushed the median -- a lot of folks are further back. they divide the mall into sections. it requires a certain level of security to get up close. a little less security to be further back where we are. based on the crowds that we're seeing and we should keep in mind it is about 40, 42 degrees, not a bad day here in washington. we'r
, but senator chuck schumer warns, taxes are coming. >> we're going to do the budget this year, and it's going to have revenues in it. all republican colleagues produced to that fact. lori: will republicans be receptive? steve more of the "wall street journal" senior economic writer joins me on the phone. what did you think about that? >> great to be with you. you know, the problem for chuck schumer is not so much getting republicans to get used to it. what about all those red state democrats in the senate. those are the people that are probably hyperventilating right now over what chuck schumer said if you look at the l.a. tour map, there are six, seven, or eight red state democrats that face reelection in 2014. melissa, i don't think too many of them are relishing the idea of voting for another tax increase. i wonder whether the chuck schumer, harry reid budget could pass the senate, even with just democratic votes because you have so many people that are up for reelection that are going to be very reluctant to stick their necks out and vote. by the way, as you know, we just had a $600 billi
. today's celebrated barack obama breakout star was none other that charles schumer who hosted the fest activities. he was able to enhance the rit yiment with shah bat service announcements. >> the theme of this year's inaugural is faith in america's future. >> jon: speaking of faith, i believe we should at this time thank cantor lonestein's lovely wife, hannah, for the delicious treats awaiting us downstairs. [ laughter ] following the ser -- [ laughter ] but of course inauguration day isn't all ceremony. at its center is the president's speech where he articulates the vision of governance in the next four years. the early reviews. >> marvelous speech brave and bold. >> historic speech. >> audacious speech. >> a huge proposal for america. >> jon: it's a call to action like j.f.k.'s ask not what your country to k- do for you or fdr, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself or jimmy carter's somewhat inexplicable "she's a brickhouse she's mighty mighty." [ laughter ] true it was an inaugural speech before you it was -- [ laughter ] let's listen to barack obama. >> fidel at this to o
-to-do on the heels of chuck schumer over the weekend saying that the senate will produce a budget and it will include higher taxes on the wealthy and republicans may not like it but paraphrasing they just have to deal with that. what do you think of that? >> well, i fundamentally disagree. i don't think most americans would say to give more money to washington to have washington spend their money is a way to help anyone. we identify with those who have not experienced upward mobility and want to help those who need a safety net and provide the relief and save the programs and give them some opportunity working through areas on education, hopefully, the white house will finally join us in some of thosests, and there are all kinds of things and workforce training and others that we can find common ground on depending on whether the mood today lasts. >>neil: do you get a sense they are leery, the dims, to go too crazy on spending cuts. the president told president obama he sees it as a health care problem. if they get health care spending under control you may not have to attack some of the other entitl
offer 11 million illegal immigrants. it was a path to citizenship. the lawmakers including chuck schumer and robert men nen des and republicans john mccain and marco-arubio applied for the status. but not before the tougher security measures are in place. why senator mccain, why? >> what's going on now is unacceptable. in reality what has been created is a defacto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn and serve our food and clean our homes and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so great. >> meanwhile a new poll, fox news, shows 66% of americans agree that illegal immigrants should have a path to citizenship, but only if they meet requirements like paying back taxes, learning english and passing background checks and walking on short talk show hosts like myself. let's go live to beat box goat. >> i actually just saw him in a brooklyn loft this weekend. it was fantastic. we partied. got a little heavy on the old -- but that's another story. jaime, what kind of lesson is this for america or
of heavy hitters. new york democrat charles schumer is their unofficial leader. >> we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. con the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> reporter: their plan would grant illegal immigrants temporary legal status to staygr in the country if they pass a a criminal background check, pay a fine and back taxes and learn english. but they would have to get the back of the line for citizenship-- a process that would only start once border security has been improved with more agents and more drones. in 2007, republicans brought down a similar plan arguing it amounts to amnesty. but arizona's john mccain who championed reform then and nowpi says he senses a major shift among his g.o.p. colleagues. >> you look at the demographics of this country and the rising hispanic population, we're not going to win races. >> reporter: you've tried so many times to pass immigration reform. what gives you confidence this ti
from the president. chuck schumer is the latest essay, to say, as you know, if it comes to another budget that will be stressful, republicans may not like it, but they will have to deal with it. i will have more on the attitude in the approach of the president. i didn't see anything shocking or the president. he is kind of echoing what he already has said. maybe slightly more directed to the point. maybe something that you would normally see in an address like this. maybe more inclined for the state of the union address. >> what is interesting though is that a lot of the lines could have been in his campaign speeches. the whole thing about, well, there are a select few that are making it at the top. the rest are getting the scraps. we have to build them up. i heard that in city after city in ohio and florida and colorado and iowa. neil: were you surprised to hear it now. >> are you going to be up late? >> are you going to have a tv dinner over there? neil: it was enough to say that i won this election and i'm going to go with the spending and this will happen. >> he did, he said th
his bidding in the senate more to the point by saying. presumably on his behalf. chuck schumer comes to mind, and he has already said that the senate will produce a budget. it will mean a lot higher taxes on rich people. if republicans don't like it, forget it. deal with it. it is that message that is coming through loud and clear. they feel that since the cliff deal they could triangulate republicans to make the house allow stock so that if the house rejects with a rare coming up with a look like obstructionists it is no small accident today that this inauguration day republicans chose to announce that they're going to have about on extending the debt limit for another three months. in other words, to put off this very, very important matter for another few months. as much to get their own ducks in order as the countries. but this tells you something about the mind-set of republicans. they still behind the eightball. melissa: we will break that down even more after the next commercial break. let me ask you before we get to that. do you feel like the tenor has changed? of republicans
is the next country. >> we also have breaking news. chuck schumer, the senator from new york, seen as key to chuck hagel becoming secretary has confirmed he will support the former nebraska senator, despite some controversial comments in the past on israel, iran and the jewish lobby. many people consider chuck schumer's support as absolutely critical, that he couldn't probably get confirmed if he did not have chuck schumer's support. let mess bring in lo receipta sanchez how significant do you believe this decision is. >> chuck schumer is a very bright guy, and i think it's a very good coupe for umer senator hagel to get his endorsements. honestly, unless you really want to gum up the senate, i see the former senator being confirmed. >> let me go back to guns now. i'm sure you'd heard the discussions by now, concern by some that the president may be overreaching? >> it will be interesting i think the whole shy has to not only be approached by the congress, but the sharing of information. so how he does it, what laws exist that allow or don't allow it will be interesting. but i remember wh
schumer as ways to read what's going on. chris: do you think -- he'll tell us a lot? >> yes. chris: and carden. some. other guys from big cities. >> i think he will come through in the end. >> yes, he will. but the people who might otherwise oppose him are going to get something out of it. i don't know what. chris: what about -- >> chuck schumer. >> not just chuck schumer. but other reassurances, for example, among the neo-cons. about iran, about israel, and so forth. you're going hear a lot more statements publicly from the president in order to make sure that hagel gets through. which he will. chris: let's go about the gun issue. which is very troubling to a lot of people. will we get a substantial package that looks like the n.r.a. didn't like it but it still passed? >> it will be small and discrete. >> they're more likely to get a smaller package than a larger one. >> i agree but this issue is moving faster than people think. chris: are we in a unique time where people will bounce against the n.r.a. and say no, you're wrong this time? >> the n.r.a. will oppose everything so yes
, the commander in chief, but it turned out to be a surprise toast for none other than senator chuck schumer instead. take a look. >> folks, i raise my glass to a man who never, never, never operates out of fear, only operates out of confidence, and i'm toasting you, chuck. >> oh. and a guy -- a guy who i plan on working with. you can't get rid of me, man. remember, i'm still part of the senate. god bless you, chuck. you've done a great job. lamar, you have as well. to chuck schumer. good to see you, pal. >> i'll toast to that, mr. chuck schumer. >> doesn't need a prompter. >> all right. now, all of his enthusiasm yesterday helped fuel speculation about a presidential run in 2016. just take a look at some of the recent headlines. i've got scarborough over here throwing stuff. i get no respect. i'm like rodney dangerfield. vice president biden invited key players -- >> i'm almost positive he was drinking apple juice. i just poured this jameson. do we really want to see what's going to happen? >> look at this. this is incredible. i can't even get through the script. what am i going to do? what
cooperation. and here is the president now with charles schumer, the senior senator of new york. >> mr. schumer i believe is in charge of the congressional committee that puts the inauguration on. he'll be speaking before the president takes the oath this morning. of course, there will be no lack of conversation on this trip to the capitol. of course you'll have the vice president there. he can always be counted on to -- if there's a gap in the conversation, he'll fill it. >> it will be something to see whether between the vice president and senator schumer the president can get a word in edgewise on this short trip up. it's about 1.6 miles. i'm reminded that abraham lincoln once said about this trip, he said i have always been told that i'm going to hell, but i didn't realize it was two miles up the road with a dome on top of it. i'm sure all presidents feel that way from time to time. the president's armored limousine now moving past the entrance to the west wing and will soon be on its way out of the white house grounds and up pennsylvania avenue. senator schumer who is riding with
republicans, and even a few democrats -- senator schumer, right, from new york -- describing some of this concerns or objections as a way to either return to some arguments they used to have with senator hagel. i would mention john mccain in that category of disagreements they've had in the past, but also to hold the president's feet to the fire on other things they want to have more on the table. gwen: i have a hard time imagining senator schumer, a leading democrat, in the end -- he may hold out his support but in the end, not supporting the president's choice. >> no, and hagel's going to say what schumer wants to hear about support for israel. there's no question about that. gwen: already has. >> and he's calling senate ofss saying he's a strong supporter of israel but on the point of, if he's going to not get confirmed, i would find that shocking because the president will line up behind the -- democrats will line up behind the president's choice. >> two purple hearts. gwen: john brennan has to be confirmed and he's been the architect, for many democrats, a far more troubling
and the nation's debt. joining me now to debate those issues, chuck schumer of new york and newly elected republican senator ted cruz of texas. welcome back as senator cruz to "meet the press." back to both of you. i want to start on the gun debate. because as i say, even before the second term is officially underway thissy is bait is well underway. here are the highlights of what the president wants to accomplish. universal background checks. he'd like to pursue a ban on high capacity magazines. an assault weapons ban that lapsed in 2004. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men
